(WIDKY By AnnaMarie Houlis) – It’s good to know that our firefighters and police officers have that do whatever it takes attitude.
Rescue crews were left with no other choice but to use a chainsaw to cut a whole in the wall of a home with a suspicious “residual stink,” to rescue George Sargent, a 600 pound man.
Police said they have visited Sargent before since he lives on his own, but he has usually been okay up until this time.
According to Fire Engineering, emergency responders and a hazmat team from the Westmoreland County Department of Public Safety were called in to check the odor and found Sargent conscious but unresponsive.
Sargent was eventually placed into the back of a flatbed truck and taken to a hospital.
